My husband loves pecan pie and so i am always looking for pecan pie-like desserts. This one is a real winner! I have made it probably 40 times by now, i have even made it for large crowds.

Tastes like a piece of pecan pie and so easy! I used pecan halves for a showier presentation. I took these to church today and everyone wanted the recipe.

Oh how I wish I'd have loved these. I ended up with a big sticky mess. The outside was hard as a rock and the inside wouldn't set up for anything. I'm a pretty skilled baker, and there's just so...
